Applying for accommodation

Applications for January 2021 are now open.

Stage 1

What type of academic offer have you received?

Your course offer status will determine your first steps in the application process.

  • Conditional Firm: You can submit an online accommodation application. However, your application will be held until we receive confirmation from the university that academic requirements have been met.
  • Unconditional Firm: You can submit an online accommodation application. Once you have reached this status and you have met your academic requirements, you will be offered accommodation (subject to availability).

Please note: Insurance students will NOT be able to apply for accommodation until Coventry University London is confirmed on UCAS as your new Firm choice.
